HESSTON, Kan. – After the Newton Invitational was canceled due to inclement weather nearly a week prior, the McPherson High School Track & Field Teams were finally able to compete in Hesston Thursday, May 2. Only part of the team competed Thursday as the Bullpups have another meet Friday, May 3 in Wamego.

Caleb Muehler won the 1600M Run and MHS finished in the top two in the 800M Run with Ethan Elder winning and Kayden Friesen finishing 2nd.

The girls team only won one event, but finished in the top three in multiple others. They won the 4x400M Relay and finished 2nd in the 4x100M Relay. Peyton Bonham finished 2nd in the 200M Dash, Mallory Holmes placed 2nd in the 100M Hurdles, and Addison Chapman finished 3rd in the 100M Dash.
